more than one discovery_agent

We have a very fragmented network with multiple datacenters and lots of individual vlans in each datacenter.  Is there any recommendations on installation / placement of discovery_agents in a dispersed network.  Do you place a discovery_agent in each datacenter?  Right now I have the default of one discovery_agent on the primary Nimsoft NMS hub.  It seems very sluggish and sometimes becomes unresponsive.  I'm wondering if it's because it's struggling with discovery of all the vlans that we have?  Is there any limitations on the discovery_agent (i.e. number of items it can discover, number of vlans on your network, etc.)?
